RE: Sheet Metal Screws vs. Wood Screws

I prefer sheet metal screws to wood screws, but have no technical basis for that opinion other than they seem easier to screw in without splitting the wood. Otherwise, I mostly use deck screws for wood projects. I almost always pre-drill the holes.

RE: Midwest ideas

For Wisconsin, my pick would be Devil's Lake SP.

RE: Need opinion on portable oxygen concentrator

We purchased the Simplygo for my mother. She has used it for over 3 years with no problems and is very happy with it. I believe the max continuous flow for that unit is 2 liters. When you are out and active you need that continuous flow of oxygen and I wouldn't settle for less. Look into liquid oxygen to see if that might work better for you.

RE: Advice needed-Western US summer trip

If you go to the South Rim, try to stop by Meteor Crater. I think the South Rim has the most spectacular views.

RE: Advice needed-Western US summer trip

I've seen young kids that were already red-faced and dazed being dragged by their parents up the trail to Delicate Arch in 110 degree heat. I like visiting Moab even in the summer, but please don't push the kids too hard.

RE: An older class A for a single traveler

We love our HR, it was the top of the line in its day, but getting a motorhome that has a modern fuel-injected engine and more advanced transmission would be worth it.

RE: HF Batt Maintainer, A Waste?

If you are electrically inclined, there is a relatively simple modification you can make to adjust the voltage on the HF charger pictured above that will allow you to adjust the voltage as you desire. I did it on several of the chargers I have and it is very useful. I believe that I got it from a post on these forums.

RE: HF Batt Maintainer, A Waste?

HF sells a number of different chargers and maintainers. Which one do you have?

RE: Kayak mounting

I did a post on this earlier. Didn't take long to make and works well for me. Do those 5th wheels have receivers on the back? http://i63.tinypic.com/2i20xu8.jpg

RE: Is this worth it. Or am I in over my head...

Not worth it. You could get a used class A in good condition for less and start camping in your spare time. X2 on parting it out.

RE: CB radio vs. cell phone vs. HAM Radio

Is your cell phone service with Verizon? That will give you the best coverage in remote areas. A CB radio is cheap may be very helpful in an emergency on the road even with its short range. I always have one with me.

RE: Desulfating

I have several desulfators that I bought from wizbangplus.com. I have used them for about the last five years. I keep them on my batteries along with a trickle charger while they sit on my workbench during the winter. Many people would tell you that desulfators are voodoo. I have no definitive proof that they work. But I did just test one of my batteries that is 10 years old and got a full 100 amps from it.

RE: Repair Sagging Jayco J-Steel Sofa Seat

Take your RV over to an upholstery shop and get an opinion.

RE: Most Common Method Used to Winterize?

I've always worried that because the RV isn't exactly level, there may be a small amount of water in the pump that doesn't get drained out, so I put some anti-freeze in the FW tank for that reason.

RE: Reading the tea leaves: a new era for public lands?

Unfortunately, politics is directly related to going camping, and this is going to get worse in the future.

RE: How do I get her ready for the long, winter nap?

Once a month, go out and run the generator for a couple of hours. Plug in some heaters to give it a load. Work on an inside project for awhile while the rv is warm.

RE: Mr Heater Buddy

I have the Big Buddy model which has two heating elements and a fan. It takes two small propane bottles. Using both elements it will get the entire front area of my coach comfortably warm within minutes, it seems. But using both elements is too much because the propane will only last about 3 hours and the coach gets way too warm, so one element is really enough for the front area. The heat does not reach the back bedroom as well. I keep the driver and passenger windows open a crack for ventilation and I have two CO detectors in the coach. We also use it for ice fishing and usually wind up just wearing t-shirts while we sit in the shelter. I'm very happy with it.

RE: removing radiator on a 1986 holiday rambler

Don't have pictures, but you're right about what needs to be done. I had a shop here in Denver do it for me. Good luck with the repair.
